In case no one has read it yet, its now in the Sun about the Argos/Homebase
Apparantly the thousands of us who ordered it will not receive it (suoprise!) and we should have had emails sent saying we will get nothing!!

    Is anyone else thinking that this was a deliberate pricing error by Argos/Homebase?

    Hardly the major consumer-led attack on Argos that some people were predicting is it? Looks more and more like a cunning Bank-Holiday weekend plug to get lots of people talking about a rather staid company. All publicity is good publicity.
